The venue has hosted events for clients including fashion brand Pringle, NSPCC, Wedgwood Britain and Standard Chartered Bank. New clients hosting events in the gardens include global law firm Linklaters, charity Place2be and the Institute of Civil Engineers.

Lorraine Thorne, sales and marketing manager at Middle Temple said it had been a ‘record breaking’ summer. "Promotion of our award-winning gardens is a contributing factor to the bookings hike, as new clients are utilising the garden entirely or as a curtain raiser to their event, before moving to the interior venue spaces."
